More than 30 years ago, a group of oxygen- and alcohol-deprived amatuer hikers convened in a Pakistan hotel room after summiting the world's deadliest mountain. There, Flying Dog was born.
A RENAISSANCE (AND MOUNTAIN) MAN.
George Stranahan -- a PhD in physics, founder of the Aspen Center for Physics, professional photographer, writer -- lead that expedition to the summit of K2 in 1983, at the age of 52. In 1990, George opened a brewpub in Woody Creek, Colorado with Richard McIntyre, a man who continues to be well ahead of his time.
